Caption

Robot surgery. Surgeon (centre left) performing minimally invasive surgery (MIS) on a patient's heart using da Vinci, a remotely-controlled robot surgeon (centre). The surgeon views a three- dimensional image of the area being operated on in the grey box at left. He is controlling the robot arms using instruments under the box. A view of the area from the robot's endoscope is seen on the monitor at upper left. The da Vinci system allows precise control of surgical tools through an incision just one centimetre wide, with greater control than manual MIS procedures. Da Vinci was designed by Intuitive Surgical Incorporated, based in California, USA.
